(HANFF, HELEN) (1916-97)
84, Charing Cross Road, Grossman Publishers (Div. of Viking/NY), 1975. Deluxe Gift Edition. Original dust jacket (price clipped). Interior clean and fresh.
A small yet delightful volume. The Christian Science Monitor observed that Charing Cross Road is unique, brezy, bouncy, courteous, restrained, funny and sometimes suddenly poignant. This is a story about an American writer who strikes up a correspondence with the Frank Doel, manager of Marks & C0. London in 1949, buying arcane volumes and chin-wagging her way into the hearts of the Marks & Co. staff. The book was adapted to the screen starring Anne Bancroft and Sir Anthony Hopkins.
We OVERPAID for this gift edition (our bad!)…selling it at a loss but you will be REWARDED with hours of delightful reading if you purchase this charming book.
